Gouki - OB G37x Coupe

I guess I feel like my car warrants a build thread now.
It even has a name . Black and red isn't exactly the most creative color scheme but there's a reason I bought a black car. I played with some other ideas, like an Iron Man inspired color scheme but ultimately I wanted a black car.

Niche Form M157
Toyo Proxes T1 Sport
Front: 20x8.5 +25 | 245/35
Rear: 20x10 +40 | 285/30

I'll post my alignment sheet when I get it checked. I somehow think I could run lower offsets with more negative camber and still be in spec.

As I bought it


More symmetrical without the G37x


GTR start button with the swapped guts. Actually cut some of those plastic flosser things to get the clips off - felt like that'd be gentler


Standard keyhole delete


I hate chrome


GTR map lenses added 5HP & DD goodness


CAI was a bit more than I anticipated


More debadge


Dropped on Eibach


City lights swapped


Fogs, although the cheapest 6000k option from DD was a mistake so gonna go to 3000k


Vinyl wrap Interior trim



My first attempt at aftermarket wheels - Niche Enyo


BlueBatMobile on the tails


Followed a DIY and put my grounding kit together


Paddle shifters were a pretty easy install


Tanabe FSTB - thanks Newt


Wheels round 2 - Niche Form


After failing to vinyl wrap my grill I had it painted in OB at a shop. Everything but the front of the emblem is also OB


You've seen it a million times but...

Sport pedals; also nothing new


Can't tell you how nervous I was lining up the template and drilling the holes. I think I did a good job though.

Nice choice w/ your second round of wheels, they look superb on that black G. BTW, how do you like the T1 Sports? Also post your tire & wheel specs on top if you don't mind~always helpful for those looking to get the same setup.

Not sure how to gauge the T1 Sports. It's not like my car is boosted but it does feel like the power I do have at the wheels is reaching the road "better". I have way more traction than on my stock 18s - but that might be a combination heavier wheels and summer vs AS tires, meh.

How long have you been lowered on eibach springs? Hoe are they holding up? Also why would you ditch the 6K fog lights by diode? Thanks for sharing though, very clean

Super tempted to give the smarta** response here...but I won't . "03/28/15 - Eibach Pro Kit", so since Saturday, March 28th. The car feels nice and planted; body roll was significantly reduced (used to see the car shake at start). The 6K fogs LOOK great, but that's it. As I mentioned I went with the cheapest option, so the look is all I got - usable light not so much.

All my LEDs are from DiodeDynamics - a supporting vendor on here. The map lenses I got from ConceptZPerformance(also a supporting vendor I believe??), but they can be found a few different places. And Thanks.

Called today. Not sure what I was expecting but, as I already knew, I'm outside the return/exchange window on those fogs.

I finally went ahead and ordered my spoiler with the ESTORE2015 coupon code. Ended up paying ~ $365. Should hopefully have that soon and then I can deal with the anxiety of drilling holes in my trunk.

Currently debating getting the Sport Muffler, since that can be had for ~$550 if ordered from Willow Grove. Although at one point I was sure I was doing a full FI exhaust, but now I'm semi considering doing just an axle back for sound - maybe the sport, or a topspeed/beluga, or that used Tanabe in the classifieds(for now anyway).
